Your question is not complete.

Strict liability means the accused person is held responsible regardless of his or her intent. Therefore, I'm assuming that you're asking about non-muslim persons, like the Sudan teacher in the news recently, who are held liable for violations of laws that are based on muslim principles (like not naming a Teddy bear "mohammed"). The interesting question you raise is whether the government's law should make exceptions for foreigners who don't know much about the country's religion. I guess it boils down to the islamic concept of "justice" in the particular country, and this is not something we can answer based on logic. It's a religious question and is not amenable to a rational answer.
